“Great place”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

Lovely people, very well run and well organised, a super restaurant and Ghazala made our trip to Dahab very special (our kids loved their pancakes and hot chocolate too!) Would definately recommend. We were actually staying next door but used Ghazala instead of our place every day!
There is fantastic snorkelling on the reef just out from Ghazala particularly on a calm day and an easy walk into Dahab itself. It is a 15 minute walk to the lagoon which is a beautiful beach for swimming with kids

It's a perfect place to have a really good rest and relaxation. A very convenient location - one can easily reach the center of Dahab or a secluded shore. Very cool and friendly staff, a cosy restaurant on a beach with great food, fantastic atmosphere...
I've spent two weeks there and it was a wonderful time in Ghazala!

I stayed at the Ghazala Hotel for 5 days in late January. Room was clean, Wifi worked quite well, food in the resteraunt was very nice. The staff were very friendly and talkative and I had a great time sitting down to talk to them at the end of the day. Hotel is in a perfect location, no noise only the sound of the sea. Would definately recommend..

The stay was really nice and so are the staff, in the end I was almost sorry to leave.
Upon arriving I find myself in a valley of smiles from the very first person I meet, Entering the room, it was simple, basic, clean and the view was spectacular; i was able to have a full view of the sea and could fall asleep peacefully to the waves crashing on the shore.

Location:
It's right in the middle of every thing which is good because its easy to walk to all the shops, restaurants and clubs yet its conveniently away from all the noise if you need to escape for a more quite and relaxing time.

Amenities:
This is not a five start hotel but its defiantly a five star hotel service on a decent rate in a beautiful city.

Food:
Simply delicious! from breakfast to a snack to a proper dinner.. Yummyy

Staff:
They're genuine, attentive and friendly. After visiting there for several years, the same friendly smiles and professional standards.

As for my diving experience:
Dahab Offers great scuba diving opportunities and is world famous for its dive sites. most of the dive sites are easy entry and exist which makes it a great place to dive and not to mention the outstanding marine life.

Honestly i just can't praise it highly enough. they have the reputation for being safe & professional and the equipment is in good condition and i have been so lucky to dive with Karim who is a wonderfully calm and professional Dive Master, and has so much knowledge of the marine life, that guy has eyes like a hawk! pointing out camouflaged and hidden animals. He cares about the safety of the people he is guiding. and this to me is a very big deal since diving is lots of fun but also a dangerous sport if not respected.

Anyway, bottom line is, if you want a fun, professional dive, Karim is the guy you're looking for.

These are the things that made me enjoy my stay, and my warmest congratulations to the hotel for their choice of personnel. They know how to really make you feel at home, safe, welcomed and if you need anything it is like asking a family member.

Basic but pleasant hotel with the nubian dome ceiling which was very nice. Rooms are spotless, beds a shade on the hard side but all the facilities you need in working order. The setting is very nice with gardens and tables outside the rooms. The restaurant is great - on its own spot on the beach and all the food was good for the price.
The guys that run the place are fantastic. Very helpful with useful advise on what to do with your time in Dahab and will sit around smoking sheesha, chatting with you.
All in all a great place to stay for the money- you won't find anything as good for this price in Dahab.
The only reason for a 4 rating is that its on the quiet side of town and we stayed two nights after the Ghazala by the light house, which we preferred, and we had a couple of very chilly nights while we were there and the heater did not work - but they gave us loads of blankets!!

Room Tip: maybe away from the beach so you don't hear the dogs and cats!!!

Very basic but exactly what I would look for in DAHAB in terms if relaxation and chill out. Staff is amazing. Hondah just cant stop cracking jokes although doesnt spoeak english:)) Nice barbeques every evening, drinking beduin tea and smoking shisha next to the fire on the beach staring at the night sky full of stars. Can't get better than that.

Own beach is a big plus and it is amazing for snorkling. Food is very affordable and tasty (loved oriental breakfast every morning). Free wi-fi is available. At the end of the town but that's why I love it- quite and very relaxing.

Rooms are small and basic- no TV. Great! Makes you stay outside more and not watch TV in the evening (remeber what I said about fire, beach, stars earlier:). The only thing I was not happy about- it is flies during the day and mosquitos in the evenings. But I guess you cant do much about it- most of Dahab suffers from this issue. make sure you bring proper repellent - not some natural flowery stuff but proper DEET
